Jesus Joy Giver – The Face of Joy

September 28, 2014 4:05 pm Published by Leave your thoughts

I have told you this so that my joy may be in you and that your joy may be complete.” John 15:11

There is a common mistake made in church. We can think that because we possess a truth about our Savior that is real, and eternal, and urgent, that we therefore must stand in judgement of the world around us, must be strict teachers with our every word, and must conduct ourselves as good, sober, serious, boring, party-poopers. That couldn’t be more wrong! We don’t win our battles through self-righteousness. We don’t win souls to Christ by being dull. Instead, God wants us to carry joy into the streets—the joy that Christ came to give us!

The stories in our fall sermon series, Jesus Joy-Giver, feature Jesus as a joyful teacher.

We believe that before Christ comes into our lives, we don’t know real joy. We are like the water jars in a Gospel tale: empty, dry vessels waiting to be filled with something, anything. Then Jesus touches us and we are filled, transformed, and finally put to good use. Put to real use, bringing the joy of Christ’s transforming power to other lives.

Our Christ is the Christ of weddings, of Beatitudes, and Resurrection. He is the friend at supper, the healer, the bringer of joy. He wants us to be shot through with love and wonder, to be like little children again, children of God.

At that time Jesus, full of joy through the Holy Spirit, said, ‘I praise you, Father, Lord of heaven and earth, because you have hidden these things from the wise and learned, and revealed them to little children. Yes, Father, for this is what you were pleased to do.’” – Luke 10:21

Galilee’s senior pastor Jason Duley will help us tap into this transforming joy in a five-week sermon series:

Pray First by Pastor Jason Duley

August 28, 2014 3:54 pm Published by Leave your thoughts

It's no secret that in busy Northern Virginia, we struggle with priorities. That’s the reason there is such traffic, because we’ve all got places to be. There are important jobs to do at work. There are relationships to nurture at home. We need to get to school, to the airport, the home improvement store, the gym. There’s sports practice, dates, appointments, groceries, you name it.

We have as many things on our minds as we do on our plates, and we struggle with what should come first. Some think that God should come first. And doesn’t that mean that in all things, prayer should come first?

The pathway to God is laid with prayer. Galilee United Methodist Church invites every busy Northern Virginian to our summer sermon series, “In All Things—Pray First,” as we explore the encouraging prayers of the Bible and learn the power of prayer through the lives of praying people.

New lead pastor Jason Duley examines actual prayers from the Bible.

Come worship with us this summer and witness the power that prayer has to inspire and motivate. Learn to improve and deepen your practice of prayer. Come have your heart touched to act in loving service so that we may lay down burdens and break down barriers!

Pastor Duley says: “As pastor my hope is that in response to these sermons, people will write out a prayer goal, write personal prayers in a journal, prioritize prayer as the #1 activity for the average day, and increase prayer by five minutes a day.”

Pray first. Does that sound like a priority?
